Sugar Bear Cocoon
Join us for a KAL of this design in the Tot Toppers & When I Grow Up Group in October 2010.
KAL also includes options for the matching hat and a hooded cardigan, be sure to check them out.
Snuggling is never quite the same as in those first few months. This cocoon is perfectly cozy and soft for brand new babies and will fit for as long as your little one is willing to stay inside it. It’s worked top-down, first flat to form placket edge, then in the round to finish. The stitch pattern is easy to memorize and adds interest to the knit. Don’t forget to knit the matching hat, and check out the coordinating hooded cardigan for children up to size 10.
